Swirlz World Opens in Merrick
Long Island's "ultimate dessert experience", Swirlz World, has officially opened featuring more than 14 delicious frozen treats plus a 10-foot candy wall with everyone’s favorites and assorted other desserts.
More than just a self-serve yogurt shop, Swirlz World also offers gelato, ice cream, sorbet, iced coffee, refreshing smoothies, candy and other tasty treats including homemade Belgian waffles, crepes and yogurt cakes.
Swirlz World will host a grand opening party on Friday, July 13h from 10:30 am to 11 pm. To celebrate, Swirlz World will be offering the first two ounces of frozen yogurt free all weekend. In addition, the store will be giving away 500 frisbees and 500 beach coolers to keep your yogurt cold. These offers are one per family, while supplies last.
Swirlz World is the brainchild of Merrick entrepreneur Jordan Eddi, who recognized a need for frozen yogurt and dessert in North Merrick, in close proximity to several schools, ball fields, houses of worship and with excellent parking. Mr. Eddi, who has been in retail for 27 years and is the proprietor of a successful jewelry store in Queens, says he and his family opened Swirlz World to be closer to home and get more involved in the community. Mr. Eddi is joined in operating the store by his wife, Violet, and children, Michael and Gabbi.
"Swirlz World is unique for many reasons," he says. "We have a 10-foot candy wall with more than 40 different types of candy that can be used for toppings, giving our customers over 75 toppings to choose from. Our unique and original store design sets us light years ahead of our competitors."
Perhaps most important, however, are the smiles on the faces of the many children (and adults) who have already experienced the fun of Swirlz World’s tasty treats. The store has been busy from opening until close every night and is making its mark on the neighborhood.
Swirlz World is open from 11:00 am to 11:00pm every day through the summer months.
